So much fuss about foreigners

Everyday one is likely to face with some articles in TOM urging the people to treat the foreigners better, embrace them as friends, make them feel welcome etc etc etc. What about treating Singaporeans a little better? We don't even treat our Singaporeans well and we worried ourselves crazy that the foreigners be treated well. Just look at how Singaporeans treat each other, the neighbouring quarrels, the snubs in public places, the way they stared or glared at one another? But maybe that is the true character of Singaporeans. They are socially inept, callous, peasants with rude peasant manners. So what can we expect of them when coming into contacts with foreigners? The only people that can teach the Singaporeans how to treat the foreigners well are the SPGs. They are classic in the way they make foreigners welcomed here. Then there is another group, the counter salesgirls. Or even the taxi drivers. We should use them as role models, making some video clips and air them on TV.

PRCs are the rudest of the lot. No thanks to them, we have become more babaric. We have come to throw more social graces out the window.

Treat foreign talents better? No wonder all the local talents are migrating to greener pastures.

Treat foreign trash better? Why should we when we are treated as local trash?

when my parents stepped into this shore 70 years ago as sinkeks, they made themselves fit in to whatever that was here. they survived, the true blue migrants that came to make a better life for themselves.

now we have softies migrants and demanding to be treated better than the locals. oh yes, they are here to help the locals. the locals better kowtow to them.

I am glad that Redbean agrees that the foreign talents are here to help the locals. Well said Redbean. I wish more would see it that way.
